Hill Road House Fire

Friday, March 31, 2017 04:13 At 04:31 hours on Friday, March 31st Tower 34 was dispatched to the 200 block of Hill Road to assist Bon Air Fire Company 58 on a house fire. Initial dispatch reported smoke from the roof. Responding units were advised while enroute that supplemental information indicated that there were power lines down in the area.

Pipeline 58 arrived and established command, reporting a 1.5 story single family dwelling with smoke showing from the roof and requesting a second alarm. Tower 34 arrived and assumed truck company operations. Initial access to the fire building was complicated by an energized primary electrical distribution line that was down in the front yard of the dwelling.

While carefully avoiding the electrical hazard, Tower 34's manpower split into two crews. The interior crew proceeded to the second floor, completed a primary search, and located a heavy smoke condition on the D side of the structure. Upon opening the walls and ceiling the crew located heavy fire running the studs and rafters of the second floor. Tower 34's ventilation crew deployed ground ladders and ventilated the roof, encountering heavy fire in the C/D corner of the structure. Pipeline 58's crew stretched two 1 3/4 inch hand lines to the second floor. With coordinated fire attack and ventilation the engine and truck companies were able to contain the fire to the void spaces on the second floor.

Also responding from company 34 on the second alarm assignment were Engine 34-1, Engine 34-2, and Utility 34. Crews assisted with overhaul, salvage, and roof operations.

Company 34 returned available at 07:09 hours.

Also on location were Manoa Fire Company, Brookline Fire Company, Oakmont Fire Company, Springfield Fire Company, Garrettford Drexel Hill Fire Company, Narberth EMS, Haverford Township Police, and PECO.

Changing your clocks? Change your batteries!

Sunday, March 12, 2017   It's that time again! After you move your clocks forward an hour this morning, don't forget to change your smoke and Carbon Monoxide detector batteries. While you're at it, check the manufacture and expiration date of your detectors as manufacturers recommend that all detectors are replaced after ten years. Also remember to test each detector at least once a month.

NEW LIGHTING

Saturday, January 14, 2017   In December installers finished replacing all the apparatus bay fluorescent lights with LED retrofits. New covers were included. The cost will be paid back over several years with a 58% energy savings benefit. Multiyear warranty and maintenance are included, saving our Volunteer Fire Company even more money and work.

Additionally, the bays are significantly brighter, enhancing member safety.




The 4,322 kWh/year saved equals

  • 1 acre of trees planted (CO2) each year
  • 1 cars removed from our roads (CO2) each year
  • 393 gallons of gasoline saved (energy) 
Kudos to the House Committee for long hours negotiating this deal with PECO specialists and a clean, fast install by Facility Solutions Group..
